Jennifer Wehry – Office Manager
Jennifer Wehry is Building Trust’s Office Manager. Previously, Jenni has worked as a designer, typesetter, and picture framer. When she was 40, she went back to school to become a Social Worker. Her most rewarding, and demanding, job was as a hospice social worker. She will always feel honored by the families that welcomed her into their homes and allowed her to be part of a very special, very sacred part of their lives. The hospice philosophy still has a very special place in her heart. She also worked in other capacities as a social worker, and knows that she was able to make a difference.
Now, as Jenni joins Building Trust, she knows it will be the perfect blend of her business, retail, and social work experiences- and she is excited to make a difference here as well.
She was born and raised in Kent, Ohio. She has been married to Brian for 40 years in 2022, most of which she has lived in Richland County. They have 2 daughters, both grown & married. She loves football and the Cleveland Browns, however recent developments are severely challenging this devoted fan.
She is happiest when she is making things. She learned to sew when she was 9. She has made several wedding dresses, all types of clothing, furniture slipcovers, and almost everything in between. She also dabbles in calligraphy, jewelry making, and almost anything crafty.
When not at working or crafting, Jenni and her husband love to be outside. They have a goal to hike all of Ohio’s State Parks at least once. She also recently took up archery (long bow) and is looking forward to learning fly-fishing.
